Werewoofs is a new graphic novel written and illustrated by Joelle Sellner and Vale Wise. Since I’ve been craving a good werewolf story (ideally one with a sense of humor), I couldn’t resist nabbing this one for a quick read.

High school can be tough – nobody is going to argue that point. But one group of friends in the Midwest is going through more changes than the average teen, for they all have begun turning into weredogs.

No, they don’t know why this is happening. But they’re hoping to find out. In the meantime, they’re going to help their new friend, Mara, find her missing father. Who also happens to be a werewolf, naturally.

Werewoofs is somehow very odd and cute – in almostperfectly equal proportions. There are elements to enjoy from this graphic novel, that much is certain. I personally really enjoyed learning about each of the characters. In fact, I would have loved it if more time had been spent on this element.

I’m going to give bonus points for having cute weredog forms (I love it), a solid sense of humor, fantastic friendships (we could all use a friend group that loyal), and LGBT representation. On that note, I will give props for the art style. Not only was it a ton of fun, but it was the perfect complement to this plot.

Thanks to New Paradigm Studios and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
